Re: Revenge of the 640 yard Chuck [just who got whom?]

You have given me something new to think about. I have not
thought twice about picking up a Groundhog, but I was allready leary of the blown-up Armadillo's. Thanks for the
info!

Re: Revenge of the 640 yard Chuck [just who got whom?]

If you would coat those bullets with a good antibiotic and continued to shoot at least 600 yds the the virus/whatever would be gone by the time you got to the trophy chuck. Also if you would drill a dimple in the base of the bullet and pack it with salt the chuck wouldn't spoil either. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Glad to hear you're mending well. I appreciate your good attitude. Keep shootin'. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

While we\'re on the subject.............

What concerns would there be in regards to picking up Wyoming P-dogs long enough to take some photos?

Would surgical gloves prevent any problems? They sure would look funny in the photos. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Varmint Hunter,pdogs are known carriers of the Plague. the doctors that worked on me said that most of these type of sicknesses can also be caught through airborne factors as well. gloves might not be the fix but should lower the risk somewhat. I do appreciate everyones concern for me but I am feeling better each day. the word ITCH has become a large part of my vocabulary recently.I guess I better go find the hydrocortisone.

Re: While we\'re on the subject.............

I hate to say it 7mmrhb, but I was thinking along the same lines as goodgrouper. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] I can't think of how many times, I, or one of my hunting buds, has had a critter come back from the dead on us, generally in the back of a hunting vest.

Sorry to hear of your tough battle.

Being an avid outdoorsman I try to keep up with the different viral and bacterial critters out there as well. Here along our coast we have an especially rough critter that eats the flesh away in short order. Bad thing is that a strain of it occurs naturally in stagnet ponds and run off in the swampy areas where we tromp through hunting feral hogs. This along with the lyme disease and rocky mountian fever, keeps us on our toes after an outing in the bush.

Hope your over the worst part with no after effects.

I will be tuned in for your next session out on the chuck grounds. I bet there will be one or two of them that hit the ground with extreme prejudice.

Take care

Re: While we\'re on the subject.............

The primary precaution to take is to not get animal blood (especially rodents but now with west nile virus also birds - particularly my favorite- the crow)all over your hands if you have open cuts. Secondly, carry water if you are in a dry area and use it to wash your hands before eating if you have been handling shot animals. A simple rinsing off of the visible blood will reduce disease risk by about 90-99%. If there are streams of water around then that is good enough to rinse off in.

When dove hunting which is in hot weather the birds have to be field dressed immediately and so in an afternoon of dove shooting if I am killing birds I will go through about a quart of water just rinsing my hands off. Another two or three quarts to drink to stave off dehydration.

A lot of these things are transmitted by mosquitos, fleas, and ticks.

About the same number of people get tularemia as get struck by lightning (based upon my quick check) and men are four times more likely to get struck by lightning than women.
